tonight with potential danger for democrats pushing for health care reform in the united states senate. senate democrats scored a major victory saturday night in their vote to allow debate to go forward on health reform. democrats needed every member of their caucus to stay in line, and they did. that, it turns out, was the easy part. the hard part, getting every one of those senators to stay on board to allow the final vote on health care reform. as things stand tonight, that will not happen. tonight, four members of the democratic caucus are pledging to block that final vote if the public option that's in the bill stays in the bill. perhaps as a result tonight, there is growing talk about compromise. this dead lock in the democratic caucus has reportedly led majority party harry reid to begin searching fortwo possible compromise solutions. one is the triggered option offered by senator olympia snowe of maine and the other by democratic senator tom carper of delaware. at this point, the pressure is on harry reid to deliver on the reform that he's been promising. after saturday night's

the constitution and understand it's not the president of the united states. it's about the congress. the president doesn't have many powers. congress has all the powers. in the end, it's up to the congress, whether or not instructions from the president actually get carried out. they are the guys who funded. remember guantanamo bay? the president said we are going to close it. congress said we're not going to appropriate the $80 million to do it. we're not doing it. congress is very, very reluctant to come down hard on any efforts that revolve around national security. we went through more than a decade in vietnam and one of the reasons we did is because congress abc lutdly refused to shut down the pipeline of money. i think this is the same case, the same situation. congress is not happy about doing this. the public is not happy about going through it again. we have been there eight years. we may have to go through it another decade. in the end, congress does not want to be the body that says to the american public, we are not going to defend you, we are not allocating the money. congress is goin
